Midwest basketball recruiting insider Mark Miller logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Marquette for highly touted post player Dawson Garcia on Friday.

Garcia — a 6-foot-11 prospect from Prior Lake, Minn. — hosted a UK coach for a visit earlier this season, and the Herald-Leader confirmed afterward that he would be a Wildcats recruiting target moving forward. He does not yet have a UK scholarship offer.

247Sports ranks Garcia as the No. 22 overall prospect in the class of 2020.

Kentucky has extended offers to just two frontcourt players in the 2020 class — N’Faly Dante and Isaiah Todd — and both of those recruits have been exploring the possibility of reclassification to the 2019 class.

Garcia does have early scholarship offers from Wisconsin, Marquette, Xavier, Texas, Minnesota and several other schools.
